Fires in Apartments / Hotels Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Few circumstances are more frightening or devastating than a building fire. When it is where you live either temporarily or permanently, you can face serious injuries and significant property damage. Fires in apartment buildings or hotels can displace your family, or worse, take a family member’s life. If the fire was caused by negligence, you may be eligible to seek compensation for injuries, damages and losses caused by the fire.

Landlords at apartment buildings have a duty to provide a safe environment in return for tenants paying rent. This includes minimizing fire risks and having safety measures in place in case of a fire. Adequate access to fire extinguishers, open stairwells, safe electrical wiring and maintained appliances are all expected. Working sprinklers and smoke detectors can help minimize the spread of a fire, reducing risks. When an apartment building owner is negligent in preventing or stopping the spread of fires, they may be liable for injuries, death, property loss and damages caused by a fire in their building.

Hotel Fire Injuries

While most people staying in a hotel will not lose much property in a fire, they are at risk for injury. Any building fire can put those inside at risk. Burns, falls, crushing injuries, smoke inhalation and death are all risks during a hotel fire. If the hotel owner and management were negligent, contributing to the start or spread of the fire, they may be liable for injuries to their guests. A premises liability claim may be made by those injured in a hotel fire to cover medical costs, lost income, pain, suffering and other damages caused by the fire.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
